Hospice care focuses on symptom relief and quality of life. It is an alternative to hospitalization and gives you an opportunity to make a choice as to where you or your loved one will receive care for the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects associated with terminal illness. Penn Hospice services are provided by experienced health care professionals and trained volunteers under the leadership of the hospice medical director. Our staff is available round the clock to serve your needs.
